Social Justice Warmonger
Fingers crossed. Supposedly James Cameron has made comments that could be obliquely interpreted to mean that he's keen to give Blomkamp a shot, and if anyone is going to nail the look and mood of Alien's Used Future Truckers In Space aesthetic its going to be Blomkamp.His special effects work is the most immersive blend of real and digital that has made it to film. Things have weight and momentum, look as good as the real things going on around them and blend in with the already existing camera work as if they were there.
I get excited everytime it is mentioned and maybe it will work out post merger, although I hope someone else writes the screenplay.
Worst case scenario, we get a very interesting failure of a film and I'll take an ambitious flop over a bland success any day if the week. Best case scenario we get another District 9 with a better budget.
